Powerful is relative and doesn't say anything.

If you want to talk about an Army, size doesn't help that much anymore, it's also about Equipment.

Smaller countries could be as "powerful" as others if you make a calculation per head etc.

Japan may be one of the richest nations, but its military is nothing, relative to other super powers.

I wonder what would be the most powerful (economic/military) per capita??

Sure most of the countries above have 100,000,000 people+ but in terms of economic and military power in relation to population size, who is the most powerful?

I'm assuming that when you say power you mean it in terms of military power. In that case, US is definitely numero uno.
